Multiply your ability to create regenerative change, while developing your relationship with nature and growing your potential through a practice of learning by doing

We gather around 2 ideas: 1. ‘The major problems in the world are the result of the difference between how people think and how nature works.’ 2. ‘Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul’. 12 crew, learning to listen deeply, know differently, imagine better & act on something bigger than us

Is it for me?

Do you have a dream, idea, project or venture with potential to regenerate life around you and want a dynamic group of people backing you while you make it happen?

Do you feel our relationship with nature is broken? Are you curious about unlearning, letting go of stuff no longer serving you or the world? Are you up for experiments as a learning tool? Join us on a mission to regenerate the world around us, in service to life, becoming crew on spaceship earth.

Journey with 11 humans from many disciplines, tap into wide experiences, perspectives and skills to boost your powers


Build your resilience and potential by deepening your connections to yourself, others and the natural world

I’m Dan, creative strategist, catalyst, activist, co-designer, guide and podcaster with deep experience of learning by doing across multiple sectors

12 years experimenting with inquiry-led co-creation, life-centered design, heart led leadership and nature connection practices. I believe these unravelling times are inviting us to step into service, to participate in the co-creation of life sustaining cultures, becoming crew on spaceship earth.

“ When the world needs so much change, Dan is such a bright light ”

How do you approach diversity and inclusion?

We believe that placing peer-to-peer relationships at the heart of learning creates huge potential for a more inclusive approach to education. We also know that a very deliberate effort is required to deliver those benefits in reality. A top cited value point for Enrol Yourself participants is that they learnt alongside people they wouldn't otherwise have met and were able to exchange their perspectives, ideas, experiences and more.

We want to welcome and support anyone with a strong intention to take part in our programmes, and aim to ensure that your identity or background will not be a barrier. Whilst we don't have it all figured out yet, we are working on it.

What does the programme look like?

Starts with a weekend gathering in Bath, over 6 months we meet online every other Tuesday evening as a learning community, the journey is punctuated by 'Power Up' sessions where we report back on our learning. Everyone will lead a workshop that helps us explore our collective theme. We use our skills, experience and resources to support each other in our learning. We’ll develop regular nature connection practice where we live. We will gather for a showcase weekend in Bath to close our journey.

What does the application process look like?

The application process is simple. You can request more information at the bottom of this page, and feel free to reach out to Dan for an informal chat. If this feels like something that calls you then you can sign up via the application form. After the deadline Dan will find a time to speak with you, before offering a limited number of places

How much does it cost

Cost ranges from £750 - £1650 dependent on your circumstances and finances. There are also a small amount of bursaries available. If you are able, we encourage you to contribute to our higher tier. This makes it possible to offer these lower cost places to those with less income: and makes it possible for you to learn as part of a more diverse group. We are aware that this is a financially precarious moment for many, so please reach out if you need support

Those 2 ideas we're gathering around, whose are they?

Gregory Bateson and Edward Abbey

What about the pandemic?

We'll be gathering in person for the kick off weekend in Bath, Somerset, then remotely for the bulk of the Learning Marathon, before we gather again for our showcase closing weekend in Bath.
